International remote working is an increasingly popular model among companies that identify valuable resources residing in a target country to work from their foreign domicile, without a fixed presence of the employer in the country. In other cases, remote working is a way to expand the geographic pool for international recruitment, and/or a driver for talent attraction and retention.

In addition to privacy, security, compensation & benefit design issues, it is crucial to receive qualified support to avoid incurring unexpected costs and complications; our team, also through an international network of specialized professionals, offers comprehensive assistance on all aspects related to working remotely in Italy and/or abroad:

  • permanent establishment risk analysis;
  • drafting of the employment contract;
  • registration of the employer with the social security and/or tax authorities of the country of work; and
  • activation and management of recurring obligations (payroll, periodic reporting).
